Wild Amelia is a group of local residents who have banded together to protect and to showcase the wildlife and natural beauty of our barrier island, Amelia Island, Florida, and surrounding areas. Year-round programs are designed to educate both residents and visitors about the plants, insects, and animals with whom we coexist. Through these programs, we hope to encourage greater understanding of the interrelationship of nature and humans and, through this understanding, to grow an enthusiasm for protecting and sustaining the fragile ecosystem of this area.
Designed to educate and entertain both adults and children, our programs aim to promote a conservation ethic. Our goal is to develop a sense of stewardship for the wild things living on our barrier island and surrounding areas.
Wild Amelia is a 501(c)3 non-profit run entirely by volunteers and welcomes everyone.
